Wymara Resort and Villas is a 91-room luxury resort situated on the secluded western end of the world-renowned Grace Bay Beach along reef-protected ocean waters in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos. Featuring a well-appointed spa, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a 7,000 square foot infinity pool looking out onto turquoise waters, signature restaurant Stelle, serving fresh global cuisine with a distinctive Asian flair; and beachfront restaurant Zest, serving Japanese Robata Grilled specialties with seafood and meats, creative salads and handmade pizzas. The resort beckons guests to experience a chic corner of paradise.

Wymara Resort and Villas is located on the western section of Grace Bay Beach next to a protected park, recognized as the best beach in the world by the 2018 Trip Advisor Traveler’s Choice Awards. Grace Bay sits on Providenciales (or “Provo”), the main island in a 40-island chain that collectively make up the Turks and Caicos Islands.
With the 18- hole Karl Litten designed Provo Golf and Country Club nearby, along with deep sea fishing, world renowned diving, local art markets and gourmet dining, Turks and Caicos offers a relaxing and fun-filled getaway for all ages. In an average year, Turks and Caicos has 350 days of sunshine. The average temperature ranges between 80 and 90-degrees Fahrenheit (29-32 degrees Celsius) from June to October, sometimes reaching the mid 90’s (35 degrees Celsius), especially in the late summer months. From November to May the average temperature is 80 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit (27-29 degrees Celsius).
Wymara Resort and Villas is easily accessible to visitors via the Providenciales Airport, which lies a mere 12 minutes away and offers daily direct flights from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Charlotte, Atlanta, New York and Newark; select service from Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Toronto and Montreal; and twice weekly from London’s Gatwick Airport. Private access to the property is available via a short boat ride from Providenciales’ Blue Haven Marina or a quick commute from one of the two FBOs on-island.
The Spa at Wymara Resort and Villas is the first Certified Eminence Organic “Green Spa” on the island and offers a relaxing sanctuary for balancing and restoring the mind and body, with a complete menu of restorative spa therapies and award-winning fitness classes. The poolside spa includes three therapy rooms with private shower gardens, an open-air pavilion for a variety of classes, a relaxation garden and a fully equipped fitness center with garden views.
The resort boasts a 7,000 sq. ft. infinity-edge mosaic tiled ocean view swimming pool surrounded by an expansive pool deck with tiled hot tub and Island Pods that appear to float around the edge of the pool.
Wymara Resort and Villas brings a signature approach to luxury lifestyle that redefines the destination resort experience. Each of the 91 guest rooms offers sweeping ocean views and is positioned and designed to pay homage to the unspoiled island it sits upon. Blurring the line between inside and outside, the resort blends Caribbean cool with sophisticated style to create a sense of place for guests.
Guest room interiors feature luxurious contemporary furniture and bedding atop Italian porcelain floors, allowing the natural light to illuminate each suite. Accents of warm sand hues, dark wood and exotic materials create an inviting ambiance and complement the area’s natural surroundings. Floor-to-ceiling windows capture the beauty of Grace Bay Beach, further enhancing the seamless tropical experience.
